10 ‘Things We Want’ This Week: Hoodies, Hats, Tactical Gear, And More!
Before we get started I’d like to acknowledge something I’ve noticed recently with this feature: you bros click through on the first item you love and miss out on all the other greatness in this ‘Things We Want: A Gear Guide For Bros’ round up. You should always scroll to the end and check out everything before making any decisions on what you want to TREAT YO SELF to this week!
Some of the stuff I plan on buying for myself (or have already purchased), other things are crazy expensive and I wouldn’t be able to afford them in my wildest dreams. But that’s why this is called the ‘Things We Want This Week’, and not the ‘Things We’re Getting For Ourselves This Week’. Also, if you know of a product that you think should be featured in my weekly Gear Guide then feel free to hit me up via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I love ramen. In college, I ate the cheap ramen you buy in bulk from Sam’s Club and as an adult I seek out the fine dining ramen noodle shops all across America. I had some spectacular ramen two weekends ago in Atlanta, but what I don’t have is this glorious hoodie. It’s cheap, only $18.99, so I might just treat myself to one right now.
Bros, this is a genuinely awesome cause and one I think you’ll all be into. The team over at Mitscoots Outfitters, based out of Austin, have just launched ‘The Cause Cap’ on KickStarter as a way to 1) build one of the most durable hats on the market and 2) help the homeless transition back into society.
The Cause Cap is guaranteed for 5 years, and it’s made right here in the U.S.A. by formerly homeless people transitioning back into the workforce. When you purchase one of these badass hats you’ll be getting one of the finest caps around, but you’ll also be helping a fellow American get their life back in order:
Tim Scott, the CEO and co-founder of Mitscoots Outfitters reached out to tell me about the ‘Cause Cap’ campaign and I immediately knew this was something I wanted to support, and I know you bros will too. Just follow that link below to pick up your Cause Cap from Mitscoots today. And to check out everything else for sale in the Mitscoots Outfitter shop you can CLICK HERE.
All of these skate shoes were once the top sellers on the market, the ‘must have’ designs, and Vans has taken these Pro Classics and updated them with modern technology to bring them into the 21st century. There are four pairs of Vans Pro Classics, ranging from high tops to slip-ons, and Vans has also revamped five more of their most popular shoes for nine in total. If we’re being honest here I want them all but I know I’ll have to choose only one. I’ve featured the Vans 50th Pro Classics first and then a few others below them. Now let’s check them out!
